I'm in Mass and we're looking to add a sunroom onto our house. Our architect has suggest using Marvin Bi-Fold Doors (https://www.marvin.com/products/collections/signature/ultimate/bi-fold-door?gclid=Cj0KCQjwktKFBhCkARIsAJeDT0hHo-JJVir0YmkUOXqdy2uPQwbqxR78BlqG0cqiwQB6Wpp6GTN4LRsaAmruEALw_wcB)? Does anyone on here have experience with these? Specifically I'm wondering the cost and if there are screen options, and if so, do they work? We're going to look at them in person in a couple of weeks, but people's first hand accounts are always the best.
Thanks in advance for any insight!
Sold product from a solid manufacturer, Expect $1200 - 1500 a lineal foot for the product without installation. They have several screen options. I would probably go with there retractable screen were it me. Also not inexpensive but none are.
+1. Nothing about "bi-fold" = inexpensive. When I say nothing, I mean NOTHING.
Sliding Door vs. french doors
New bi-fold doors
Pocket door or bi-fold for 14 foot great room to yard access?
need help finding affordable exterior bi-folding doors.
Thanks for your responses. I definitely am not expecting any sort of bargains, that's for sure! I'm more curious about the screens. We have the retractable screens in our casement windows and sometimes they snag. I'm wondering that will be a bigger issue when using them on such a large scale opening?
The screen is very nice. It is manufactured for Marvin by a large Chicago company, Centour, I think. If you haven't seen it, you should before investing that much. Also, keep in mind that dogs and children and these expensive screens are not a good mix.
Marvin is a reputable company with a really great product. Screening them is not a problem at all - it can be done from the manufacturer or even aftermarket products are available. Please discuss with your architect whether inswing or outswing bi-fold doors are better for your sunroom.
I live in Maine, Chris. I was wondering if you were happy with your Marvin bi-fold door system?
